Emmanuel Macron wins French presidency

















Emmanuel Macron has won the French presidency with a decisive victory over the far-right Marine Le Pen.


Macron, 39, a former economy minister who ran as a “neither left nor right” independent promising to shake up the French political system, took 65.1% to Le Pen’s 34.9%, according to initial projections from early counts.

“A new chapter in our long history has opened this evening,” Macron said in a statement. “I would like it to be one of hope and of confidence rediscovered.”
